Rong Hua: Where to Eat Bak Kut Teh in Manila!

Rong Hua is the first authentic Bak Kut Teh (literally means “meat bone tea”) concept restaurant in Manila from one of Singapore’s oldest and most famous pork rib soup shops by founding grandfather Chua Ah Hua and Uncle Rong.

Brought to Manila by master franchisee Silver Lush Food Corporation, it has three branches in Singapore before expanding for the first time outside the Lion City. Finally, we now have a place to satisfy our cravings for our Singapore Bak Kut Teh favorite right here.

Here’s what to expect at Rong Hua Manila:

Dani Girl Manila answers “Why Cancer?” and “What is Hope?”

Dani Girl is an enlightening tale of 9-year old Dani Lyons’ battle against cancer. At some point in our lives, we get a first-hand experience of cancer and how it affects our families.

The musical is about the child-like hope needed to battle against the dreaded Big C. I’ve always admired the work of non-profit organizations like Kythe here in Manila and how they are able to help kids with cancer.

Thanks to 9 Works Theatrical and Sandbox Collective for presenting Dani Girl, a relevant musical to raise awareness and empathy about Life with Cancer, again.

DANI GIRL by Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond

Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium
